Canon 400D and the Buzz Surrounding the Launch

First spotted on Canon China's site, the Canon EOS 400D (known as the Digital Rebel XTi in North America, and EOS Kiss Digital X in Japan) digital SLR camera features a 10.1 MP sensor (APS-C 1.6X crop), anti-dust design for sensor cleaning, 9 point autofocus system, 3 frames per second, buffer for 10 RAW images or 27 JPEGs, 2.5" LCD with 230K pixels, 1/200 sec flash sync, and, hmmmm, Canon's done away with the small LCD screen. Canon also continues to use the CompactFlash format for memory storage for this camera.

  6. Rob Galbraith's Canon 400D Preview. Interesting in the piece is a statement from Chuck Westfall on how Canon managed to accomplish the same low noise levels as in the 350D, despite an increase in megapixels to ten. Also of interest is Canon's new implementation of the single, rear LCD screen that shows all the important settings in large, clear fonts and graphics - this might be preferable to many photographers who would otherwise have to squint at the information displayed in the top LCD, as is typical with other DSLRs.
